When people offer support, take them up on it.
People will bring you food because they don’t know what else to do. Don’t feel bad throwing it away.
People will say stupid, hurtful things without even realizing it
People will tell you things that aren’t true about your grief
Death brings out the best and the worst in families, so be prepared.
There is no such thing as closure.
There is no timeline for grieving. You can’t rush it.
You will grieve, in some form, forever.
There will always be regrets. No matter how much time you had, you’ll always want more.
Guilt is a normal part of grief.
